About the Coalition



The Barren River Elder Abuse Prevention Coalition is a coalition of interested agencies and persons working together to focus attention on the issue of elder abuse, promote the development of prevention activities, and strengthening the communities resources and response to elder abuse.


The council was formed under the joint leadership of the Area Agencies on Aging and local Adult Protective Services (APS) staff of the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services. Members include APS staff, local law enforcement officers, judges, prosecutors, state police, bankers, care providers, long-term care ombudsmen and other advocates for the elderly.
